I've been experimenting using various PE Ratios to increase performance... Below is a list of results when backtested with your filter using the system setup your suggested. I managed to get one to give me 100%... Even though there were only 8 trades in 2 years, I still thought this was pretty cool.

Second best >80? You do realize that the lower the PE ratio the better right?

BFreshour,

Yes, PE Ratios above 80 seem to work best for this filter. I understand that lower PE Ratios are "better" in terms of stock value but we're talking trend analysis here. I'm not too concerned with the reasons WHY higher PE's work better in this situation but rather just that they DO work better. :) Know what I mean?

Did you notice that P/E ratio in stockfetcher's database is far from P/E ratio from any other financial site, for example finance.yahoo.com? and P/E ratio exists not for all stocks.
Fetcher[price above 1 and volume above 100000 and P/E above 0]

(2334 stocks)
and
Fetcher[price above 1 and volume above 100000]

(3674 stocks)

Yes, I don't get the PE ratios on stock fetcher. My guess is that they are light years behind or something is amiss...

Hey Traderblues

I was wondering if you could explain to me exactly what the opportunity graph is telling me. Im afraid that I dont understand the dynamics behind it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

lohmeyer,

Nothing really innovative. Opportunity is simply the weekly ATR divided by the stock price. So it represents stocks that move a lot in relation to their price. You don't want to buy a $60 stock that only moves $1 up and down per week. That would give you very little opportunity if you are a swing trader.

But your question got me thinking about the opportunity ratio. I had it set at greater than 0.15. Then I got to thinking - how about stocks where opportunity was at a medium term high? So I changed that to "opportunity reached a new 10 week high". I also changed the max holding period to 10 days, and the profit stop to 20%. Still no stop loss. Here is the new 2 year backtest result:

set{dailytot,average volume(20) * Price}
set{watr4, weekly atr(4)}
set{opportunity, watr4/price}
opportunity reached a new 10 week high
and rsi(5) is below 25
and price is above 0.5
and dailytot is above 150000
and high has been above MA(100) for the last 40 days
and price is above MA(50)

Profit Stop 20%
NO stop Loss
Maximum holding period 10 days
sort by opportunity ascending (lower is better)

I left out 1 thing....there is an exit trigger of "RSI(5) is above 75". I might try taking that out, and seeing what kind of effect it has. It didn't get triggered that often, anyway.
